Players of the Day for Friday, March 2, 2012
Exhibition baseball officially got underway when the Seattle Mariners visited the Oakland A's at their Spring training facility in Phoenix, AZ, with Seattle taking the 8-5 win with five homers by five different players.
Luis Rodriguez and Johermyn Chavez added solo shots. All of Seattle's runs came via the long ball.
Manny Ramierez made his debut at DH for the A's, but came up empty in two at-bats, grounding into a double play and grounding out.
